    More convinced than ever he is a solid change of pace back, but definitely not a 20-25 carry/game starter. No doubt the OL was horrific, but Jones showed little to no burst. I can also safely say he is no Speedy.

    Agreed, he couldn't find the cutback or break tackles for a long gain.

    Same thing I was saying throughout the game. He is no speedy and our running game took a noise dive after Speedy left. No talent whatsoever. Sad, sad future.

    I don't think he broke any tackles all game. When your line can't block, it's pretty important that your rb not go down immediately upon contact.

    Can't do much when you're hit behind the line on every carry. CU hasn't had a good offensive line for years. Every year seems like our offensive line is full of 285 pound kids.

    I saw a RB who looked like he was running in concrete as he hit the holes (or lack thereof). No doubt the OL was pretty bad, but Jones is not going to be able to bail them out at all if this is what we can expect going forward.

    More excuses. I know our OL was ****, but he got dropped at first contact almost every time. Like Duff said, no burst when he hit the line.

    This is all on Beinemy. He was supposed to be the RB god. Remember when people wanted him as our HC and were really excited when he was named OC.


    Screw him. Go back to the NFL. He has no clue about how college football works.

    0 broken tackles means 0 more starts

    Abron time. Goodson and Jones were crap. Thought Creer at least showed something. Gonna be a long year...I was so amped for this year with all this bowl game talk, thought we could at least win 5. Ugly.

    Not impressed. That's all I'm going to say about that.

    Not going to call out individual players. Glad many RB's were recruited....

    I was a big TJ fan, but he needs to go. So does Marshall and Brookhart. Embree will be gone in 2 years.
